sincerely, a person who has been on prozac for 9 years

this is in response to some shitty stuff i’ve seen on my dash recently. it’s super simplified, so if you’d like to know some more indepth stuff on how exactly it works, google it—OR BETTER YET actually talk to a mental health doctor psychiatrist person wow

NEVER call my sertraline a “happy pill”
It is a pill that helps my brain function healthily with an important neurotransmitter.
Also you do realize it’s a slow acting medication right?? Like its effects are incredibly delayed. I have about a week long processing time: I know because I could feel them when they had an effect for the very first time vs the day I started them. Now if I miss a day it’s not going to make everything horrid, but I will feel it in a week as a more difficult day for just functioning as a living being.
It doesn’t numb me nor does it make everything sunshine and daisies. It helps my brain work as it should.

Not to mention Prozac and Zoloft both function as pills for OCD, anxiety, and eating disorders, because they’re not “happy pills”. They don’t make you happy. They decrease tendencies towards repetitive actions and compulsions, and Prozac is used for eating disorders because it increases appetite. All it does is adjust chemicals, which does not make people “happy”. 
In fact, if someone were to overdose on Prozac or Zoloft, or abuse it when they don’t have depression (or take too much if they do), it would cause irritable mood swings, an increase in depression, or suicidal thoughts, which should basically prove they aren’t happy pills. 

They just work towards making a brain work in the neurotypical way. 

IDK about SSRIs, but SSNRIs, which is what I’m on, are addictive - or at least cause withdrawal when you go off them. But aside from that, yes, this.

There was a split second there where his like, “wait, what? bro what are you doing?” 
On more serious note, PTSD dogs for veterans are so fucking therapeutic. They’re like the one person you can spill your guts to and never worry about ever being judged or have that secret divulged. There are times when I definitely prefer the company of a dog over a human. 

Therapy animals save lives.

These dogs are even still so much more amazing. They check rooms before their handler enters, so they can clear it to help the person feel safe. Like in the gif, they are there when panic attacks or nightmares occur, to be something for the person to help ground themselves on, or yes just to turn on the lights. Even more amazing, many people are able to reduce their medication when they have a PTSD service dog there to help them. These dogs are useful for not just veterans, but also victims of abuse, accident trauma, natural disasters, and others. Their training allows them to be useful in situations where medical assistance is needed, as well. Some PTSD dogs are trained to recognize repetitive behaviours in handlers, and signal the handler to break the repetition and stopping the behaviour and possibly injury. 
Service dogs in general are just awesome. Remember to respect any that you see out in public. They are not there for you to walk up to and play with, even the puppies!
